This is what our kids are missing out on...

When our old neighbor was here last week-end, she and Mimi played "school" and I found this note lying on the floor the next day...

"O.K. It is hard for your child to learn and she keeps on failing. She will not go to 1st grade.

Miss R and Miss E"

Apparently they were the "teachers", but you have to wonder how much they reinforce the idea of "failing" in public schools if it became the topic of a letter the girls wrote to their fictitious KINDERGARTEN student's "parents".

Just a thought.

obm, whose blessed to understand that if there is any failing done in her "school" it's me failing them, not the other way around.
Pin It!

Luke's class went to the park yesterday for an end of year outing. He came home with quite a story. A child was out of control, so the principal was called to come - and also the police. Also, 2 kids were caught writing words on the playground equipment, and were spoken to by the police. Welcome to 4th grade!

That must have made your heart hurt when you read that note.
